Specifications review for Feature Freeze

ttx conducted a review of some specifications in preparation for Feature Freeze:

  • server-lucid-aws-client-libraries: smoser reported all the relevant projects had been packaged and were waiting from review.

ACTION: ttx to follow up on server-lucid-cluster-stack and server-lucid-asterisk-integration via email

  • server-lucid-uec-testing: kirkland mentioned there was one topology left for testing. Everything was on track.
  • server-lucid-seeds: mathiaz commented that the next step was to make sure all packages had been demoted to universe. It was also decided to move all the rhcs related items to the cluster-stack blueprint.
  • server-lucid-cluster-stack: ivoks reported that all the packages were available in the ubuntu-ha PPA. The next step was to get all the MIR written before FF.
  • server-lucid-asterisk-integration: jdmault mentioned that all packages were available in his PPA. He was looking for help to get them uploaded to lucid before FF. Daviey offered some help in sponsoring relevant packages.

Boto 1.9 vs Boto 1.8 for euca2ools

ttx outlined the issue with euca2ools and boto. The current version of boto in the lucid archive was 1.9 whereas euca2ools had been thoroughly tested with version 1.8. He presented 3 options:

  1. Fix bugs a they come up, as its not black magic
  2. Revert to 1.8, and be stuck with an old lib
  3. Ship both version

After some discussion it was decided to focus on the first option.

Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team

smoser reported that both -virtual and -ec2 kernels were booting without ramdisks.

Server Papercuts

ttx conducted the review of the bugs nominated for the server-papercuts project. This was followed by a discussion about how many bugs should be worked on given the time frame. The goal was to fix 6 to 7 bugs a week given the number of bugs currently opened.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 24th at 14:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
